Antica Tenuta Pietramore 2018 Pecorino Superiore

Although Chambers has been bringing in this wine for years, it just got written up yesterday 3/21/22 in Eric Asimov's TEN GRAPES WORTH KNOWING BETTER article!  Found in the Marche and Abruzzo, Pecorino got its name from the sheep herders who used to eat the grapes while tending their flocks.  It is a variety adapted to high altitude hillside vineyards with a long, cool growing season, and typically produces very full body wines, with plenty of acidity and delicate flavors. The 2018 Pecorino from Pietramore is produced from the chalky soils of Chieti, a province located in the northern limits of Abruzzo. The vines have a north-western exposure. After pressing, the juice spends 8-10 hours in contact with the skins. The wine is aged on the lees in steel vats, with a short time spent in bottle before release. The wine's color is a deep yellow. The nose is loaded with citrus and sea spray. The palate is full bodied with strong acidity, but broad flavors of apple,  citrus, herbs, and salt. A perfect wine for shellfish and sheep's milk cheeses. Giselle Hamburg

Bera 2020 Moscato d'Asti Canelli

100 % Muscat Petit Grains from a beautiful organic vineyard, fermented with wild yeasts, minimal SO2 is used. We sell this Moscato d'Asti because it's one of the best we've ever tasted – a wine with finesse and complexity; layers of apricot, peach, honey, balanced by clean lime-like acidity. Most of the competition is dull and insipid by comparison. The fact that this organic wine is made by some of the nicest people you can imagine has nothing to do with our selecting it for your delectation...

Bosco dei Cirmioli 2020 Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie DOC

In the glass, the Bosco Pinot Grigio is a pale lemony straw in color. Some rounder aromas of melon and apple are cut by zingy citrus zest and grassy herbs. The palate is bright, with crisp orchard fruit and clean limestone. There is some roundness to the palate, but the structure is driven by the great acidity and zippy core. If you're ready for summer, then you're ready for a few bottles of this!

Cipolla 2020 Vino Bianco (Sicily) Passofonduto Solfare

A very recent addition for Louis/Dressner, this is truly exciting, and one of the best and most intriguing Sicilian white wines we've tasted - further evidence that white wine from Italy is worth our attention on a level that goes far beyond the everyday. "Solfare" refers to naturally-occuring sulfur in local soils (there were sulfur mines in the region in the distant past; the finished wine is supported by very small S02 additions). Solfare is a blend of Grillo and Cataratto, with 5% from local grapes that have not been identified. This sounds pretty basic, but the wine has complexity that is more than the sum of its parts. This wine, golden in color, has a rich nose. Aromas of pungent white flowers, savory apple, dried apricots mix wafts of smoke and spice. The palate is round and herbal, with stone fruit, yellow cherry, salt and candied lemon before a finish of black tea and golden raisins. Excellent structure, with medium acidity and just a touch of tannic grip.

I Fabbri 2020 VDT Bianco Casole

A savory white from Tuscany, this Trebbiano and Malvasia blend is a clean lemon color in the glass. The nose has dried citrus peel, green herbs and chamomile, with a hint of spice and grassiness. Flavor-wise, the wine is warm, with apple and white pepper. There is a bitterness, like green tea, on the mid-palate before revealing a softness and richness on the finish. A substantial mouthfeel, this wine calls for heavily herbed roast chicken or pork, or even red meats.

Lombardo, Giordano 2020 Gavi di Gavi Vigna San Martino

The Lombardo Gavi is a staple at Chambers. The 2020 has bright fruit of apricot and lemon, zesty minerality, and a medium mouthfeel. Even though there is a bit of weight on the palate, the wine also shows a touch of effervescence. A great bottle for anyone looking for a wine with ripe yellow fruits and a dynamic texture.

Mongioia 2016 Moscato d'Asti Crivella

Crivella is made with fruit from Riccardo Bianco’s oldest vines, including some planted in the mid 1800s by Riccardo’s great-great-something grandfather; such old vines are extremely rare, and while they produce very little fruit, it’s impossible for Riccardo to even think about replacing them. At a tasting in the shop a customer said, “Like Sauternes with bubbles!” which was a lovely way to describe the wine and its rich and unctuous character. made lively with fizz, and crisp with balancing acidity. A great match with cheese or not-so-sweet desserts, like panetone, or fruit pies. While there’s no botrytis, Crivella is much more complex and detailed than all but the very best Sauternes. I’ve certainly never tasted anything like it — a stunning wine.  Jamie Wolff

Montoni 2020 Sicilia IGT Grillo Timpa

From the eastern facing, sandy slopes of the Grillo della Timpa Sicilia DOC, Fuedo Montoni delivers a refreshing but complex wine. 30 year old vines, planted at 700 meters above sea level, and handled under certified organic methods. Fermentation happens in cement, and for a portion of that time, the juice is in contact with the grape skins. The wine then ages in cement, in contact with the lees, for 6 months. The result is a complex, but utterly fresh glass of white. The color is clean lemon. The nose offers aromas of golden apple, pear, apricot and white flowers. Flavors are of dried lemon, green herbs, lime zest, salt and white pepper. The skin maceration definitely gives the wine a touch of tannic stability, like banisters to the wine's highly angled, persistent acidity. Really enjoyable wine that wakes up the palate.

Pianogrillo 2019 Terre Siciliane Grecanico

I loved this wine when I first tasted it, and I liked it even more as we followed it at dinner over several days. It remained fresh and crisp, and – in true Sicilian style – it proved to be very versatile at table, matching beautifully with black bean soup, spaghetti with tomato sauce, and grilled salmon with salsa verde. It turns out that Grecanico Dorato (the grape used here) is closely related to Garganega (the grape used in Soave), but this news surprised me because the wine is so much more exciting than 99.9% of Soave. At 12.5° alcohol, it is light and crystalline, with aromatics that made me think of exotic, gewurz-type fruit – lychee, pineapple, warm spices, all with an intense chalky / mineral foundation and racy, lemony acidity. From 30+ year-old vines, fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts. Quite a remarkable and complex wine that far out-performs its price. Jamie Wolff

Terraquilia 2018 Bianco dell'Emilia Col Fondo Terrebianche

A blend of Pignoletto, also known as Grechetto Gentile, and Trebbiano, from organically farmed grapes. Bottled after halting fermentation, allowing carbonation to develop within the bottle. It is not disgorged, and is cellar aged for 15 months before release. In the glass, the color is a silvery lemon. On the nose, there are rich floral aromas, ripe lemon fruit, and sliced apricots. Like the TerraQuilia reds, this sparkling white is a touch herbaceous, balancing a faint bitterness on the edge of zingy lemon fruit and dried stone fruit. The palate has a bright core, but a softness in surrounding texture, creating a very compelling mouthfeel. Highly drinkable, but full of character. David Hatzopoulos
